47. “The Deepening”
(Season 3, Episode 6)
I like this one more than the ranking would indicate. A Jaws parody in which the town is attacked by an out-of-control mechanical shark, it’s a fun episode that pushes the show outside of its usual boundaries. At the same time, considering that it’s about a family running a restaurant, Bob’s Burgers tends to work best at its most low-concept, and thus the best moments in “The Deepening” are still character-based.
Best moment: When Mr. Fischoeder needs some clarification.
